Under the weather? Taking a break from training is the best medicine Unfortunately, at some point in time we are all struck down with some sort of sickness, from colds, flu, stomach bugs etc, but should we be avoiding our gym workouts while sick? Pe...

This is my most enjoyable time of year to train. The worse the conditions the more of a challenge it was. It was not uncommon to see me running in -20f degree weather or 35 F and raining. The most important thing was to wear base layers cor...

All around us are hurting people: It could be emotionally, physically, spiritually, mentally: you name it. As athletes we have an opportunity to encourage someone else with our fitness. Encourage someone you meet today. Wave at those you run by. Support...
I could not agree more. I always smile, wave, give a greeting etc when I am out on the run. I was stunned last week by how many people did not respond or even gave me "looks" or flat out ignored me. However, I was raised to wave and acknowledge people so I...

My local park run is in Centralpark, Chelmsford, a single lap on Tarmac and some grass, modified if too slippery and muddy. To be honest I have never done it, but it is nearly 2 years old and well established. a great excuse for a weekend away to new pastu...

I have eliminated caffeine as well. I do feel better. Its amazing some of the things I was going through that I had not attributed to caffeine. I think at first, depending on the level you are consuming there may be some side effects. The result of a detox...

Is anyone else having issues with their logs on here. I was curious to see what my numbers are in certian areas. My totals are no where near accurate. I have been entering everything manually and seperately am I missing something.
Aye Aye commander. :D

As I'm older (over 60) I've lost plenty of cartilage and I increase reps and sets rather than weight. I'm curling a dumbel that is 43.3% my body weight, but to keep it productive doing 20 reps per set at least three sets three times per week. Just curious...
So, my best friend just brought me over some chicken gizzards. They're pretty awesome! Anyone else had these before? Suggestions for them?
Prions are fascinating! I remember being very frustrated as an undergrad that there wasn't more research on them. CWD hasn't been shown to transfer to people last I checked, we more just avoid those deer as a precaution. I think after I t...

I'm soooo confused! Is it better to eat just protein or just carbs or a mix of a bit of both to lose weight (and maintain weight loss)?
Thank you Loretta, looks like I was on the right track with the carbs, now to work on my protein.

Interesting, this does not really suprise me though. I think for me it is still a matter of correct overall form. I do squats wide and narrow, single leg etc. Anatomy plays a huge roll in this, is the really deep squat an absolutely necessary function of l...
